Research summary

I work at the point where philosophy meets mathematics and logic. Right now, I am thinking about theoretical equivalence, types, and sets.

I recently published a serialized trilogy of papers on Level Theory at BSL. Sean Walsh and I published Philosophy and Model Theory in 2018. I published The Limits of Realism in 2013.

My real academic website is nottub.com.


I joined UCL in 2019. Before that, I was at Cambridge: as a PhD student (2006-10), a research fellow (2010-2012) and a faculty member (2012-2019).
